This week, we're having a Movie Club meeting, so that means a visit from Film Buff Fran. Fran joins us to discuss "Miracle," the story of the 1980 US men's ice hockey team, also known as the "Miracle on Ice."
Book Club Claire is back to discuss “Games of Deception: The True Story of the First U.S. Olympic Basketball Team at the 1936 Olympics in Hitler’s Germany” by Andrew Maraniss.
We're catching up with more members of Team Olympic Fever to see how they're faring in the COVID-19 pandemic. Today we're chatting with our karate Olympic hopeful Tom Scott and video journalist Sean Colahan.
Today we're learning what the Olympics are like from a National Governing Body (NGB) point of view. Phil Andrews, CEO of USA Weightlifting joins us to talk about what his NGB does for its elite, Olympic-bound athletes, as well as for its clubs, coaches and other athlete members. We also talk about drug testing in the wake of COVID-19 and how that's especially important to the sport of weightlifting.
